I've kept playing this game and I think I'm the only active member of the old guild. I've got a bunch of new heroes to level up thanks to sales and collecting splinters so if there's a guild that isn't dead I'd like to join.
EU does seem to get the short end of the stick when it comes to PSN. I believe you can pre-order digital PS4 games on your PS3 atm in the US but I haven't seen anything like that in the UK. The prices we get aren't as good, I know part of that is taxes but paying £60 when you can get it much cheaper at retail is just silly.
If that 30 day music deal doesn't make it over here I don't have high hopes for sony improving things.
Also I think in the US they don't have singstar taking up space on the XMB.
